Classier than the name would have you imagine, this understated fan from Big Ass Fans is injected with circuitry that makes it nearly autonomous. Under the Haiku fan’s minimalist exterior, sensors monitor the room’s humidity and temperature to keep air flowing for an ideal interior climate. Available for pre-order, $1,045.
The air foil-like blades are made of compressed bamboo that, the manufacturer says, are as strong as steel.
A built-in light is also available as an option, which can be set to turn on at certain times as a wake-up alarm, or to make your home look occupied while you’re away.
The fan can connect to Wi-Fi so you can control it with your phone, or you can let its motion detector turn it on when you enter the room.
